Crooked I - Boss Nigga
Crooked I to the tune of Nas’s Hate Me Now.
Big Hutch - Big Hutch’s Revenge [2011, VIDEO]
West Coast legend and long time Eazy-E affiliate, Big Hutch AKA Cold 187um, has just released this new video for the track from his latest album Only God Can Judge Me.
The pioneering G-Funk producer, and producer for legends such as MC Ren, Frost, and Eazy-E among others has always stayed true to the game and dropped hard records throughout his career. Hutch has put out that much classic material over the years that whether it’s with Yukmouth, Roger Troutman II, Crooked I, or Above The Law it doesn’t matter because Cold 187um always delivers.
For a minute it looked like Death Row was ‘bout to hit back with a big resurgence. Crooked I was on fire, TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes had signed under the new name N.I.N.A., Kurupt was back where it all started and was goin’ hard droppin’ shit with Y.A., Suge was back out the joint, Above The Law was on board too and reunited with the old Ruthless Records bodyguard Suge, and Death Row still had a crazy stash of unreleased records to put out.
Lake - Death Row’s Back
There was a time when it looked like Death Row Records was about to make a real resurgence. With artists like Lake, Crooked I, Petey Pablo, N.I.N.A. (AKA Left Eye from TLC) and Kurupt back at the label that made him famous, it seemed that the label would again make waves. At one point Cold 187um was even signed to the label filling the spot as head producer that had been left vacant. He produced some great tracks there too, like 2Pac’s Words 2 My First Born, Tha Dogg Pound’s Just Doggin’, Snoop Dogg’s My Favourite Color and Crooked I’s Fuck Em amongst many others. The amount of unreleased tracks and full albums from Death Row is incredible and a unreleased album by Lake titled “The Big Ride” also features the track Death Row’s Back.
Don’t sleep on the “19th Street LBC Compilation” album.
The album was masterminded by Big C-Style for the now defunct Noo Trybe Records.
This album is by far one of the best gangsta rap compilation albums around.
Long Beach rapper Crooked I has gained an incredible level of excitement within the rap community by always delivering hard lyrics heavy with lyrical dexterity.
Crook has now earned a level of recognition from rap fans that had been unseen throughout his career. Most notably the formation of Slaughterhouse and it’s subsequent signing to Eminen’s Shady Records have made larger numbers of rap fans take notice.
Gust apperances on Eminem recordings can’t hurt Crooked I sales as a solo artist either.
